EAST POINT, Ga. - April 13, 2016 - PRLog -- After several months of hard work and collaboration with the March of Dimes and the Zion Hill Community Development Corporation, Kappa Iota Zeta (KIZ) Chapter was proud to hold the grand opening of its revitalized Stork's Nest. The ribbon-cutting ceremony was held on Saturday, April 9, 2016 at the Zion Hill Community Development Corporation building located at 2741 Bayard Street in East Point, which is also the address of the KIZ Stork's Nest. The program is designed to encourage pregnant women to receive early and regular prenatal care to help them have a healthy pregnancy and a healthy baby.

Members of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity, Community Leaders and Supporters were on hand to tour KIZ Stork's Nest, donate items, and share words of encouragement and excitement. "I am thrilled to see the legacy of the Stork's Nest Program continue in the metro Atlanta area," stated Evelyn Brown in her speech to the assembly. Ms. Brown is a member of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority and the creator of the original Stork's Nest Program back in 1971 in Atlanta, Georgia. Pregnant women join a Stork's Nest program after being referred by a health care provider or a social services program. Women earn points for various healthy pregnancy activities and redeem these points for maternity and baby care items. Shaneesa Ashford, Georgia State Director for Zeta Phi Beta expressed her admiration for Kappa Iota Zeta President Shannon McGuire-Lee and KIZ Stork's Nest Committee Chair Tara Lockett on reaching the Grand Opening milestone. "I am grateful for the work that Kappa Iota Zeta Chapter is doing for the State of Georgia," said Ms. Ashford. "I am a proud State Director". KIZ President Shannon McGuire-Lee added "Our Sorority prides itself on being community conscious and action oriented. We are targeting May 2016 to begin the Stork's Nest classes and we look forward to serving the East Point community."
